$A = P - D$ // Amount=Price of Clothing- Coupon Value

#### Explanation:

Going to make amount due=$A$, price of sweatshirt=$P ,$ and coupon value=$D$ as you stated. You could change the letters, but this makes the most sense.

The amount due is:

Amount= Price of clothing-coupon value

This can be written as:

$A = P - D$

This is the equation in terms of algebra

Actually working out the equation:

By substituting values, the amount is unknown, so we keep it at a, the price is $40, and the coupon value is $32. So....

A=$40-$32=$8 A=$8#
